Biography

Sometimes being a leader means recognizing when old and familiar methods are more limiting than they are helpful, and trying untested approaches to uncover better solutions. That’s what the co-founders of Upwork did when they chose to work together whilst living an ocean apart. The result? Not only did they build fantastic technology and lead their company to the top of their industry, they’re also helping to lead the paradigm shift in how we work and collaborate worldwide.

As Senior Vice President of Enterprise at Upwork, Eric oversees the company’s growth initiatives. Prior to joining Upwork, he led the staffing and healthcare groups at CareerBuilder. Eric is passionate about talent engagement and workforce hiring trends. His unique perspective on the evolution of the industry has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Forbes and at industry-leading conferences including Staffing Industry Analysts’ Executive Forum and the American Staffing Association’s Staffing World.
